Following training on Thursday morning, nib Newcastle Knights coach Nathan Brown spoke to the media.
The coach was asked for an update regarding Pauli Pauli, who suffered a dislocated hip in a car accident on Wednesday night.
“Our medical staff are with him at the moment, and his welfare is obviously important to us,” Brown said.
“Football clubs are like families and all the guys obviously care for Pauli.
“I’m sure he’ll get plenty of visitors.”
Meanwhile in regards to Jarrod Mullen, who was provisionally suspended under the NRL’s Anti-Doping Policy on Tuesday, Brown said his main concern was also the player’s welfare.
“Jarrod’s welfare is everyone’s main concern,” he explained.
“In Jarrod’s case, I think the support he needs will have to be further down the track as well.
“When he’s ready I’m sure he’ll talk to the media.”
